Author information

Department of Medical Statistics, Informatics and Health Economics, Innsbruck Medical University, Innsbruck, Austria.


The Austrian Procedure Catalogue is used for procedure coding in Austria. Its architecture and content has some major weaknesses. The aim of this study is the presentation of a new potential content model for this classification system consisting of main characteristics of health interventions. It is visualized using a UML class diagram. Based on this proposition, an implementation of an ontology for procedure coding is planned.
